Fishing Resort (Wii)

 

In general, there are two categories of people when it comes to fishing: those who love it and those who hate it. Those who love it do so for their own reasons, while the people who hate it typically complain that it's more about waiting than doing....

Fishing Resort Review

 

Place looks nice, but...

Peaceful atmosphere; Cool fishing controls; Lots to explore for the patient, dedicated fisher; Only $19.99

Missed potential for multiplayer, limited options; Dry equipment system; Caught one fish, you’ve caught them all; Reward is slow to come

Fishing Resort Playtest: A Life Of Exploring, Racing And Fishing

 

The fishing experience in Fishing Resort is less dominant than the exploration and discovery aspects, which are almost reminiscent of monster-collection games like Pokémon.

To rack up Points, go to Malam Jungle with L-size tackles and fish up Alligator Gars. You’ll need some practice though, because they fight back without reservation. Once you get used to it, though, this provides an easy way to “grind”.

Fishing Resort Review

 

Fishing Resort proves that taking things slow can still make for a great game.

Fishing is actually fun and rewarding. RPG-like mechanics add a lot to the game's lasting appeal. Lots to do and see aside from the fishing activities. Stunning graphics and sound

Fishing mechanic's slow pace will turn some folks off. Multiplayer is a little shallow. Line tension gauge is so faint that it's hard to see a lot of the time

Fishing Resort Review

 

Fishing Resort is a great fishing game, but it likely won't hook most people.

Despite the developer’s best efforts to provide some side activities and an open world to explore, there isn’t much in Fishing Resort that will inspire any but the most hardcore fishing fans to plunk the time in. If sitting around patiently for hours...

Easy controls and various activities don't mask the waiting needed to get that big catch.

Easy to grasp controls ; A lot of activities outside of fishing to take part in

Long periods of time where nothing is biting ; Takes a long time to get better equipment ; Improving your equipment doesn’t immediately improve what you catch

When something bites, Fishing Resort can be enjoyable, and the other activities available do offer a welcome change of pace. But those times when you are waiting for something to happen overshadow the adventure. Some may still find a reason to visit...

Review: Fishing Resort Tries Hard to Make Fishing Un-Boring

 

Prope's latest game gives you plenty to see and do, but knows it has to keep you slinging a line most of the time.

Fishing games are one of the bigger portions in the routine school lunch that is the Wii library. Realistic ones, unrealistic ones, some with controller shells to add to your pile of Wii accessories... and at the tail end of the system's life, they...

Review: Fishing Resort for Wii

 

It's hard to get excited about fishing video games. They come out fairly often, without much fanfare, and each experience is hardly unique. You take a fisherman out to an ocean or lake, catch some fish, perhaps upgrade your tackle and repeat that ad...

Lots of different kinds of fish, RPG style quests and fishing battles, 20 assorted mini-games, can customize your avatar, can take pictures of scenes, can go out on boats, can fish in tons of different areas, can walk through and stock aquariums. There...

The motion controls can get a bit tedious. It can be hard to remember where some people were to complete requests. It can sometimes be hard to see when a fish hits on the lure

Fishing Resort- Wii

 

In spite of its slow pace, Fishing Resort has an awful lot going for it. It's beautiful, it's charming, and it's got a ton of content to explore. Most importantly though is that the game is simply a relaxing a good time.

Fishing Resort- Wii

 

If sitting around patiently for hours waiting for the next big catch or running around doing fishing-related side activities sounds like your idea of an amazing weekend, this game will suit your needs beautifully. Otherwise, it doesn't offer much...
